Seeing is believing. And that’s the only way you’ll really get to know about our sophisticated technologies and how we’re using them to fight crime in the capital. We don’t say much, for obvious reasons, but suffice to say that we’re leading advancements in emerging technologies to deliver bespoke ICT and electronic solutions in specialist areas to make London safer.

This is an outstanding opportunity for you to work in an exciting engineering and science environment offering excellent employee benefits and to work with some of the UK’s top academics, delivering operational technology solutions.

The Technology, Research and Innovation (TRI) team keeps the Met at the cutting-edge of tech. Its work is highly innovative and no two projects are ever the same. Some initiatives involve undertaking research with academia or exploring new off-the-shelf technologies. Others involve modifying commercially available products, or creating a whole new solution from scratch.

Delivery of these solutions involves the complete lifecycle from developing requirements with customers, producing design solutions and turning these designs into a fully functional product or system for operational use.

As a Research Technologist, you’ll be taking the very best of emerging technologies within UK academia and helping to turn these into new operational capabilities. This is a unique and exciting role for you to work at the cutting edge of technology.

Fundamental to this role is the ability to find solutions to complex operational problems in an innovative way. You will draw upon a wide range of science and engineering related disciplines to address the needs of frontline officers. You will take their operational requirements, identify academic partners to work with and technically lead the delivery of research projects.

A typical day, may include engaging with MPS customers, capturing and documenting requirements, meeting with partner agencies, planning technical demonstrations, testing and assessing technology research outputs, gathering evidence, to explore if they are viable for developing into operational solutions

As a Research Technologist, you will be working with a wide range of stakeholders and will need to assess and adapt to each type of audience. You will be someone who can readily engage and win support of others. You will be working with some of the UK’s prominent academics, so you will need to be able to communicate at their technical level. Maintaining momentum on projects is essential in order to keep the operational customers focused. Our aim is to get elements of the research delivered to operational officers as quickly as possible. Therefore you will need to think of ways to keep their commitment throughout the research lifecycle. You will have already demonstrated exceptional talent in your career.
